How Do I Know If I Have a Case?

This is the most common question that our clients have after being involved in a car accident. Although every case is unique and you should always consult with a personal injury attorney before accepting any settlement from an insurance company, here are three things that must be true in order for you to have a case:

  1. You must have been involved in some type of automobile wreck, regardless of the severity of the wreck, and you must not be responsible for causing the accident.
  2. You must have been hurt or injured as a result of the accident. This does not necessarily mean that you had to be transported to the hospital after the accident.
  3. The at-fault driver or party must have had valid insurance coverage at the time of the accident. If not, Carole can work with you to find insurance coverages that might be available to pay your claims.

If you have these three things, then you have a case and Carole Hayes can help you receive compensation for your injuries and your other losses, such as damage to your vehicle and time off from work.


What Types of Injuries Qualify Me for Compensation?

  • Whiplash
  • Neck & Back Injuries
  • Cuts & Scrapes
  • Vision, Smell, or Hearing Loss
  • Loss of Limbs
  • Broken or Fractured Bones
  • Concussions
  • Head Injures / Brain Damage

What If I Can’t Afford to go to the Doctor?

It is critical that victims of car accident injuries seek medical attention as soon as possible. Even very minor soft tissue injuries, when left untreated, can become much worse. Over the past two decades, Carole and her team at the Hayes Law Firm have established relationships with numerous physicians, physical therapists, and other medical facilities across South Carolina where our clients can get the medical treatment they need for no money out of pocket. These medical providers will wait for payment until your case settles. Once we resolve a claim and receive your settlement, Carole will then pay the physicians and medical facilities directly.


What If I Can't Afford an Attorney?

As a personal injury attorney, Carole Hayes is committed to fighting for justice on behalf of the clients that she represents. Unlike some other attorneys, all consultations with Carole are completely free and you will never pay any attorney’s fees until she settles your case and you receive a monetary settlement. If you decide that you want Carole Hayes to represent you in your car accident case, the first step is to contact us!
